Garden Workday June 1 (and 2/4 swans)

We had a successful gardening day on a warm Saturday morning.  Dead grasses and weeds were removed, wood chips were spread on the garden paths, Anise Hyssop was replanted, Japanese knotweed was cut back from the path opposite the garden.  New native plants (steeple bush and cardinal flower) were added to replace the invasive plants that were removed previously. We had eight people working this morning:  Alex, Peg, Stephan, Ann, George, Jenifer, Johanna, David

There was also a bit of swan drama as the work was getting started.  A pair of swans flew over and landed in the Reservoir.  The resident male was not very happy about the newcomers.  After a bit of back and forth and a few harsh words the new pair flew away.
